MIA Design Studio has completed a home in Vietnam, for their client who wanted not only a comfortable but also convenient living space situated in the center of a hectic city.

The home, which has a concrete structure, is softened by the use of lianas (or climbing vines).

The vines hide the concrete, creating a tropical paradise, and a fresh green filter.
